Volcanoes of Indonesia launch photos

Posted on the 3rd December 2012 by Lindsay

The Singapore launch for Volcanoes of Indonesia was held last Friday night. The photographer of the book, Carl-Bernd Kaehlig, gave a very interesting talk on his travels throughout Indonesia and his experiences climbing and photographing the country's majestic volcanoes. Later Carl signed books while everyone enjoyed wine and some Indonesian-inspired food.

Many thanks to Select Books for hosting the event and making the night a success.
